I can't remember where I found this recipe long ago, but it's one that sounded so yummy to save and try in the future. Well, my friend Linda asked last week if I had a slow cooker pork roast recipe and she decided to give this recipe a try, untested, Her review was: "The honey mustard was a very good sauce and the roast just fell apart it was so tender!" Thanks for the taste test, Linda. Since I know it must have turned out delish, because she wouldn't fib, I am sharing it with you fellow TF Family Members :-)
Oh, and you know I am not going to be able to resist cooking it for myself much longer now! I did forget to ask her if she cooked it on low or on high but I am assuming low because the slower the cooking the more tender ;-)
Wash and trim the pork, pat dry, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and place pork in the slow cooker.
Combine garlic, mustard, honey, brown sugar, vinegar, and thyme in a small bowl, pour over the pork, and turn pork to coat thoroughly. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours or on high for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours.
Remove pork to a plate, cover with foil to keep warm, pour the slow cooker juices into a saucepan, bring to a boil over medium heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until reduced by about one-third.
Combine the cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl, whisk into the reduced juices; cook for 1 minute longer and serve pork sliced with the thickened juices.

Can I prepare pork tenderloin on high in a crockpot or does it have to be cooked on low?
By Sherri Lile from MO
Yes, you can but for a nice tender and juicy meat it's better to cook on low for more hours. :-)

I have a rotisserie flavored pork loin I would like to cook in the crock pot. I'm just not sure what liquid to add to the crock pot. What goes good with rotisserie flavor? Please help.
i dont use liquid while cooking pork loin in a crock pot, i start out with a stick of butter and a large onion sometimes two onions , cutting the onion into chuncks, so first i put the butter and the onions in the pot , then i put the loin on top and set it in high, for bout 2 1/2 3 hours , the i take the loin out for a minute, the loin and onion and butter, made a terrific broth, so, to that i chunk up some potatoes and carrots and put in the broth then set my loin on top, and season and cover and cook til potatoes and carrots are done, the seasoning i used was mrs dash and i coated the loin with a generous layer, its very good, and is one of our favorite dishes , when the potatoes and carrots are done , you should be able to move the loin to a platter, and slice, up your desired portions
